Monday’s Reality makeover
MasterChef, The Block and The Amazing Race dominate Monday night viewing. Try not to look surprised.
Reality TV continues to dominate the viewing landscape with MasterChef Australia topping Monday once more with 1.65m viewers over The Block‘s 1.36m.
Nine’s renovation show pulled less than the previous Monday (1.54m), possibly due to the fact it has shifted its “room reveal” episode to Sunday nights. But that move also paid off in Sunday results.
The Block won at 7pm over Home and Away (1.12m), ABC News (912,000) and The 7pm Project (802,000).
Ranking behind the Reality shows were The Big Bang Theory (947,000), Border Security / Crash Investigation Unit (922,000 / 788,000), 7:30 / Australian Story (680,000 / 740,000), and Mythbusters (251,000).
The Amazing Race Australia (1.12m) won its timeslot over Rescue Special Ops (929,000), Can Of Worms (911,000), Four Corners / Media Watch (660,000 / 641,000) and Man vs Wild (239,000).
It was a tighter race at 9:30pm but Q & A won with (619,000) over CSI: Miami (566,000), Bones (559,000) and Law & Order: Criminal Intent (511,000).
Without a late night repeat there was no change to 6:30 with George Negus, but it’s too early to tell if the strategy will drive up early viewers. It pulled 443,000, well behind Today Tonight (1.32m) and A Current Affair (1.16m).
Neighbours on ELEVEN was the top multichannel show with 412,000 viewers.
Seven won the night.
